A research team supported by CVP produces a new modeling study to improve predictability of air-sea interactions of the Meiyu front, a meteorological zone which separates Arctic from tropical climatic zones in the Pacific Ocean.
CVP-funded research uses observations from the ATOMIC field campaign to improve the understanding and emphasize the importance of small scale air-sea fluxes in the tropical Atlantic.
A new CVP and MAPP funded modeling study projects changes in ocean eddy processes with future climate change to advance our understanding of coastal ecosystem and community impacts up to 2100.
A new CVP-funded modeling study shows that North Atlantic cooling is largely explained by atmospheric processes, rather than a slowdown in ocean circulation.
Modeling study funded by CVP evaluates and identifies a more accurate method to simulate atmospheric rivers and their relationships to climate variability, enabling improved predictability of related extreme precipitation events.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
